District seeks applicants for Oversight Committee
The District is accepting applications to fill a vacant seat on its Measure G Citizens Bond Oversight Committee. The Oversight Committee reviews school district spending and ensures that bond revenues are spent only for the purpose set before the voters on the June 8, 2010 ballot. Committee members represent various parts of the community: businesses, senior citizens, taxpayer organizations, and parents of students enrolled in the District. They serve for a term of two years without compensation and for no more than two consecutive terms. (Education Code Section 15282(a))
